Give support and show it off too!
Nov 29, 2010 by Nataliya Semez

Dear Friends,

My daughter Marina is fundraising for my run to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society by making beautiful beaded bracelets in purple and green TnT colors. If you would like to get one (or 2,3…) and show off your support, please let me know. She is selling them for $5 each and they can be custom made (there are different variations of beads’ colors and size). Thanks and have a great week!

Adding new names!
Nov 16, 2010 by Nataliya Semez

I am still on 30-minute runs - still hard - still going strong. Saturday group runs help a lot! Today I have updated my shirt with many names of my friends who donated in support of my trianing to LLS! How exciting to have friends like mine who are always there for me! I cannot wait to show off the names on my next run and hope it's not raining, or snowing!

Cheers to all and please stop by this page often to see my updates.

Where the money goes?
Nov 11, 2010 by Nataliya Semez

What can various donation amounts really do?

$25,000 provides a one year supply of Gleevec for one patient. Gleevec is an oral drug that puts CML into remission; no chemotherapy, no radiation.

$5,000 provides transportation for 13 out of state bone marrow donors.

$2,500 provides for 12 blood transfusions.

$1,000 allows patients to meet with health care specialists to design and discuss their disease, treatment plan and prepare them with the info they will need during the treatment process.

$300 will train 25 peer volunteers who can provide emotional support to newly diagnosed patients.

$150 will provide patient aid to a person with Leukemia, Lymphoma, Myeloma or Hodgkin's disease for a year.

$100 will pay for the cost of 4 patient's chemotherapy drug prescription co-payments.

$50 will register 1 person to be a bone marrow donor.

This is why I am doing it (quick facts)
Nov 11, 2010 by Nataliya Semez

An estimated 912,938 people in the United States are living with,

or are in remission from, leukemia, Hodgkin lymphoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma or

myeloma. Every four minutes, someone new is diagnosed with blood cancer. Every

10 minutes, someone dies.

Leukemia causes more deaths than any other cancer among children under the age of 20. Lymphomas are the most common blood cancers and incidence increases with age. The survival rate for myeloma is only 37.1 percent. Incidence is nearly twice as high among African Americans as for all other races.

By donating here you are making a difference!

I am ready!!!

Today was a kick off celebration with the Team in Training! So inspirational! I got my running shirt and now consider myself officially pimped! :) We got to meet our team mates, coaches and mentors, but also, hear testimonials from people who survived blood cancer. What an honorable cause! Thanks to all my friends for the support!!! And, as promised I got the names of the two first supporters on my shirt! Let's get those names on that shirt!!!!
